This storyboard does not have a description.
Many years ago there was a monster named Grendel, and he was not a very pleasent dude. Grendel wanted to take down all of the people having fun in the village so he terrorized the people of Herot for "[t]welve winter[s]" (Raffel 62).
When Beowulf came over to Denmark, Beowulf and his men were not welcomed: "Whose soldiers are you,/ [y]ou who've been carried in your deep-keeled ship / [a]cross the sea-road to this country of mine" (151-153)?
After Beowulf came to Denmark, he claimed that he was going to fight Grendel; therefore, he did. Grendel came to the mead hall this night, and "came, hoping to kill" but that didn't happen "Grendel [ ] gnaw[ed] the broken bones/ [o]f his last human super" and then Grendel and Beowulf fought literally to the death. (287, 310-311)
Just for a bit of backstory on where Grendel lived it wasn't a very pleasant place to be.
